MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Calling Rob Newt Re Titan

Hi, just contacted Mini Spares,-- had no idea what I was talking about!!!
Tried David Manners, put me onto the MG section, they new what I was talking about and passed me onto Keith Calver, Mini specialist, who also knew what I was talking about, but couldn't help. He did say he had a good friend who works at Titan, so I told him to persuade them to get them back in production.
Where did you get your from?
Cheers John & Wayne

Failing that, it's reasonably easy to take a wedge out of the Mini version to lower the angle if you have access to alloy welding. I'll be ther on Sunday if you want to check it out.

It was my brother who has ordered one from David Manners, he is back from Belgium tomorrow so he should be picking it up shortly, so we will then see if it fits??
I am sure it was a maniflow though not a Titan
Btw we get trade discount so you might have to pay a bit more.
I will keep you posted

Can you take a side on shot - I'd be interested to see the relative position of the carb to the inlet ports with respect to height.
